Coax "Artifacts And Discovery" [sfp04]
"Our fourth release is a full length album from norwegian artist Coax, who has previously made appearances on Kahvi and Monotonik netlabels. Artifacts And Discovery being the title, the album is a wonderfully varied combination of ambient softness, dramatic orchestral pieces, sensitive piano interludes, science fiction movie atmosphere, all spiced up with the occasional electronic rhythms. At times, you feel like you have landed on the surface of an unknown planet, feel the tension build as you look around and there is nothing but unexplored terrain surrounding you. Then, as the album goes further, the next moment.. the dreamy string ensemble capture your attention, you begin to feel safe and comfortable again. Enchanted with the beautiful harmonies, you watch the clouds passing by, happy memories from the past are filling your mind, you feel like floating. Close your eyes, enter the intriguing world of Artifacts And Discovery."
